Man City were right to destroy Burton, says Jesus

       Burton chairman Ben Robinson says it will be a case of 'damage limitation' against Manchester City

1:15 Burton chairman Ben Robinson says it will be a case of 'damage limitation' against Manchester City

Before the match, everyone knew City would win, and the sight of them laying siege to Burton's goal in the final minutes as they tried to make it double figures was, depending on your point of view, just cruel or very amusing.

The clinical display effectively booked City's place in the League Cup final before they have even played the semi-final second leg at Burton later this month.

His team conceded 29 goals in just 17 league games under Mourinho but the Red Devils have since conceded just three goals in four games under Solskjaer.

"It's the first time I've played in a win like this.To be fair we scored a lot of goals, we wanted more, and our fans did too". That's been one of their main strengths in recent seasons and I'd far rather be on a settled Burnley doing what they do best than a Fulham side still learning the ropes under a new-ish manager. Sean Dyche seems to have finally got his side ticking and, importantly, they look much improved at the back after a few heavy defeats this season.

"They got a massive squad of players that cost a fortune and earning a fortune, that's what you get in the Premier League so it's chalk and cheese". That is the best way to respect the competition and opponent.

Man City will hope to continue their terrific form and close the gap on league leaders Liverpool when Wolves visit the Etihad on Monday. But we had experience at Bristol City in the semi-final last time when we were 1-1, 2-1 in the last minute.

The pace of scoring did improve in the second hour with 41 runs taken, but India again struck twice to peg them back. At stumps on day one, they were 303 for four with the rock-like No3 not out 130 and Hanuma Vihari on 39.

"It's good for us because we can play the second team and players who don't play so many minutes".

"I have never scored four before in my career, I am so happy for this", he said.

Of the top 20 highest ranked players in the world, 12 of them ply their trade in the Premier League.

"We spoke about that at half-time, to be simple, to play simple, to let them run and try to score more goals", added the Spaniard. We kept going right to the end, they were shouting "we want 10" and we stopped them, that's a positive for us.

City, for instance, held a 14-point advantage over Chelsea at the same stage previous year and are the first top-flight team to reach the 50-point mark after 21 games and not lead the table.
